I have been playing around with spark plug covers, trying to make the engine look less Toyota like. I wanted to do a quick poll to see what you guys think.

Vote up at the top of the page

A. The original covers

B. Some models had this silver strip on the bottom and top of the spark plug cover.

C. A hacked up blank spark plug cover, this is the cover from the other side without the "V8 FOUR CAM 32" This gives it a real clean look without the writing on it, but does it look too plain?

D. Same as above but with the top and bottom strips painted silver (Ignore the bad photo shop)

E. The blank rocker cover with the Chrysler badge that is normally on the bonnet of the Chrysler Avengers. This will really mess with people because it will look even less like a Toyota engine, I'm hoping it will fool enough people :)

F. The same as above but with the silver strips.

Tried the new idea of the painted fins IRL on the old "V8 Four CAM 32" covers. They look pretty sweet. Obliviously I would be doing them on the plain covers without the writing.

What do you guys think? I'm liking the one with out the silver strip at the top and bottom. The bottom one in this picture

And here it is back on the engine

This is my fav because it pops out more, without the writing I think it will look awesome

Almost reminds me on a BMW engine
